The Sebenza 31 is not a completely new model, but rather an update to the time-tested and proven design of the classic Sebenza 21. The Sebenza 31 has updated features including: Ceramic Ball Interface from the Umnumzaan/Inkosi, off-set clip design, improved ergonomics, removal of fixturing hole on front handle, re-designed inlays (select models) and tighter tolerances thanks to improved machining processes. Sebenza means “work” in Zulu and the model 31 will see plenty of work as it is built with heirloom quality to last. This Left Handed version comes with a drop point, CPM-S45VN stainless steel blade and blasted titanium handles.
Brand new, direct from Chris Reeve Knives. Proudly Made in the USA.
Blade: The small Sebenza 31 delivers just under three inches of polished, shaving sharp cutting edge on the CPM-S45VN drop point blade. The deep hollow grind offers exceptional slicing performance and extended life through sharpening and use. The blade is fully stonewashed to hide wear from use while continuing to look great while the jimped thumb ramp offers traction and comfort. The rest of the spine is crowned, smooth and polished for a custom feel. A single blue anodized titanium thumb lug allows the left handed user to open and operate the blade easily. It moves on a pivot system using oversize bronze washers with grease-filled pockets for a smooth, hydraulic operation.
Handle: The dual slabs of 6AL4V titanium are sandblasted for a nice, tactile feel that will develop a unique patina with wear over time. The Reeve Integral Lock utilizes the titanium frame to deliver “bank vault” like lockup. An upgraded Ceramic Ball Interface increases the reliability and life of the lock while offering an extra smooth operation of both lock and blade. The construction is completed with full titanium hardware including a blue anodized spacer and lanyard pin. A black nylon lanyard comes installed.
Carries via a left hand, tip-up only, Off-set Titanium pocket clip.
Included is a single tube of fluorinated grease, microfiber cloth and information packet.
CPM S45VN: An evolution in the S30-series of steels from Crucible, S45VN shows improved edge retention and corrosion resistance relative to S35VN a slight reduction in toughness. Also considered an upgrade to Elmax with similar edge retention but better hardness, corrosion resistance, toughness, and a finer carbide structure (better sharpness).
